I was thinking about picking up the Purge one shot this week.  This covers the Vader ROTS-ANH period, right?  I thought it was something like that, but I couldn't find any information on it this morning with a quick look.  I picked up all three issues of the Rogue Leader series, and I really enjoyed it.  I hope we continue to see some OT stories told in the comics this year.

Yesterday I picked up the Purge one-shot, now my second Star Wars comic book. (First was Empire Strikes Back: Infinities TP)

Purge was excellent.

The SW comics have been pretty darn good as of late.  My only problem is that very few seem to get the dialouge right.  Purge did a pretty good job, but still, things like having the emperor claim "do not concern yourself with the jedi, they can no longer harm us", or Vader surrendering (even if it is a fake surrender) just don;t quite feel right.

Still, they have been great, and hope it continues.  Seems Lucasfilm may have loosened the strings where now there's more movie tie-ins vs. a completely obscure and independant "Luke saves the day" type story.

Well, it depends....

Republic #81 was scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 11.  and it did arrive at most stores on that date.  However,  there were a series of errors at Diamond (the main supplier / shipper of comics) that factor in here.

1.  A midwest shipping truck broke down and it delayed comics in the midwest a day (which is why I didn't get mine until today).

2.  An error at one of the distribution centers shipped out some copies of Republic #82 to stores when it was Republic #81 that should have shipped.  I just lucked out that one store recieved the issue that was intended to be out today and another got in the "early" shipping issue.  Stores that received #82 this week are supposed to get #81 next week.

Who, after reading 81 and 82, cannot wait to see how this ends.
